Voices from the Beinecke Library

M. M.

A pair of Mickey Mouse books from the early 1930s.
Mickey, chercheur d'or [Paris] : Hachette, [©1931]
whose endpapers advertise the adventures of the fellow on film and in the local newspaper.


Mickey Mouse movie stories. Philadelphia, David McKay Co. [©1931]
contains comic strips and images of Mickey and Minnie at the bottom of every page, so that the reader can flip the pages and create miniature "movies".

But the most charming attribute of this copy is the owner's inscription:
